When you're looking for a tough and reliable estate car, the new Volkswagen Passat Estate is an ideal choice. It offers all of the convenient features that made the original Passat hugely popular, with a mix of brand new technologies and design accents that mark it out as a next-generation model. Call or visit us to find out even more about the VW Passat Estate.
The standard 1.6 petrol engine for the Passat Estate is a nippy and efficient heart for the model, with a 0-60 speed of 8.9 seconds and 6.3 seconds for GT and R-Line models . It delivers an impressive amount of torque at the mid-rev range, and combines a lower four-link rear suspension system with new low rolling resistance tyres to firmly grip the road.
There are two engines on offer for the model, ranging from 1.6 to 2.0-litres and each available with different levels of trim. No matter which engine you pick out for the Passat Estate, the model will deliver an impressively high combined MPG on all lengths of drive, and several versions use VW's BlueMotion technology to keep your fuel consumption from the 70-litre tank low.
The Passat Estate has a fresh new look to match the latest breed of Volkswagen models – from the swept-back headlights to the redesigned rear bumper, the whole body looks contemporary and stylish. The model's smart green-tinted glass also works as insulation for the cabin, keeping heat in during the colder months to save energy from the Climate Control.
As with any VW model, it's the small details that make a big difference throughout the Passat Estate's cabin; handy storage spaces are dotted around the seats, precise air-conditioning helps you set the ideal temperature for driving, and there's even a 12-volt socket inside for charging mobile phones and music players. The interior is roomy enough for passengers and their luggage, boasting an increased boot capacity and even more leg room, and each person is kept safe by surrounding airbags and three-point seatbelts.To book a test drive in the new Volkswagen Passat Estate, contact your local Lookers Volkswagen dealer today.
